Summary
From horse-drawn carts on wheels to flying trains, there is no doubt that trains have become a major force for societal change. Humans have moved goods and themselves from place to place from our earliest times. Creating solutions to these problems have long engaged creative people. This resource explores the remarkable engineering feats that have moved this form of transportation forward into the twenty-first century. Contrasting the past with the present, budding engineers will see how they, too, may use engineering principles to discover, create and engineer the new trains of the future by building upon the past
